Jens de Ketelaere, aka X-ettl, released his first Ep "Jetgum" on dusted deck records the 25th of october. The sound of the Ep can be described as bleepy distorted sounds, with high pitching builds and heavy drops. Pre-listen it below, buy it on beatport here!

Beatbouncers released a new mixtape yesterday, which is filled to the top with a selection of the finest hard electro of today. Just throw an eye at the tracklist and you'll know what I mean. If you aren't aware of the latest developments in the beatbouncers camp: the boys splitted! Nicolas is contuing solo, while Jef completely stopped with the dj-ing stuff (sniff).

I almost forgot that we exist exactly 1 year today. At the 22th of october in 2009 I wrote my first post, giving my first readers some of my all-time favorite tracks. Illstm, Disco Villains, Trumpdisco, Mashed Paper Klub and Felix Cartal were the dudes that got honored by a post that day, and I still love them all. It's been a nice year, I got to know a lot of cool projects that I never would have run into if I wasn't doing this. But let's just cut the crap, and get to the birthday gifts right?
Gtronic and Nadisko mixed the first Tuff em up compilation cd, called "first blood". I received 3 of those as a gift from Gtronic, because we were supporting him since a long time. I kept one for myself, so that means that I have 2 of those left. I'm giving these away to our Belgian readers (I don't have the money to ship this to the other side of the world)! All you have to do is comment on this post why you would like to receive this cd, and the 2 funniest comments win! Kinda easy isn't it?
After a week I'll pick the comments that I laughed the most with, and I'll contact them to make sure the cd gets in the right hands.
This cd features tracks by Gtronic, Polymorphic, The Oddword, Autodidakt,... I guarantee that you'll party your ass off!

Comic Strips made a nice new track, called "Sainthood". He is giving it away for free once more, but I think this dude could make serious money if he found a good label. "Sainthood" uses chorus voices to get you into the right mood, and then it drops you right in the middle of the dancefloor. But anyway, I think that I'll like anything that uses Comic Strips trademark: dry, hard and even a bit sticky beats.

In the short time that this track was online, a dude called Bullwack made a smashing remix already. This shifts the label of the track a bit more towards the dubstep, but it would still fit perfectly in a hard electro set. As you can see, this song has a shitload of comments already, you can take that as a sign of how good the quality is!

The 2 songs can be downloaded in 320 quality for free here!
Moore & Lezz had the honor of appearing on this page 2 times already, and I think it's time for their third post! They just released their first Ep on the Amsterdam based "Basserk" record label, and let me tell you something... It's a BEAST!
5 original tracks (no remixes), all worth your pennies and all 100 % ready to play in a hard electro set. It was hard to pick a favorite, but in the end I think I'll follow our Belgian pride Gtronic, who picked "Tyrannosaurus" as the best track.
"Click clack" and the "Click clack (Lezz's reload)", are basically the same track (I guess you already thought something like that), but the Lezz's reload is slightly better if you ask me. The pistol in the original gets replaced by a machine gun, and when seen as a whole, the track is just a bit harder.
"Smash your phone" uses a sample from an old phone, and then it totally smashes it, on the rhythm of some aggressive vocals.
The last track aims for a slightly more funky feeling, and this is definitely the most chilled track from the whole Ep. Moore & Lezz just can't leave it chilled like that and use a few high pitching synths to make it an all-round party tune, maybe even the one that people who aren't that much into trash will dig the most.
Buy it on the basserk store here, pre-listen it on soundcloud below and download the free promo "Click Clack" promo track through this link.

And now, let's get to the case.
The Italian duo L&M bros, known for their absolutely rad track "Wario must die", are organizing a remix competition for their first EP, soon to be released on Ventuno records. The deadline is the 1st of december, so you have a small month and a half to make the track even better.
Wario Must Die (REMIX CONTEST) by L&M Bros
There will be 2 winners in this competition, the one with the most listens and the one that the crew likes the most.
Send your remixes to email@example.com & firstname.lastname@example.org (so not to our E-mail adress)
Download the parts here.
To give you an example of what directions you can take when remixing this track, I'll give you one that I dig. It's made by Wyke, a french dude who started producing a few months ago.

If you regularly check this page, you sure have read something about Haezer. This South-African motherfucker is conquering the world at a speed that Hitler would have been jealous at. Because his second European tour was starting at the Fuse club in Brussels, I thought it was a great idea to go ask him some questions.
When I became a fan of you on facebook, you only had like 2000 fans, and that was somewhere in the month of april I think. Now you almost have 6500 fans, how does it feel to be in the middle of such a hype?
Well, actually I don't feel like I'm so famous. I still feel like a baby when compared to the real big guns, but I'm only producing for a year and a half, and I'd rather grow a bit slow instead of booming now and not being cool anymore in a year. And after all, what kind of an indication of popularity is facebook? With just one click, you can become a fan of my music, so it's not very hard to get a lot of "fans" there.
Your music doesn't really sound like something that girls would like to listen to, but when I look at pictures from your party's, there are a lot of girls in the crowd. Is it always like that, or does the photographer just like to take pictures from the girls?
Haha, when I started playing only boys came to my shows to dance, but now the public is a bit more mixed. I also think that boys and girls like to express their dark side, and my music gives them a chance to do that.
What is it like to start a career in South-Africa? Is there a big audience for your kind of music?
When I started producing, there were a lot of people who were playing the hard kind of electro, but they didn't made their own tracks. But there was an audience for it, and I was the first to start producing. A few months ago I started a new party concept with Markus Wormstorm, called garden boys, to keep the scene going in Cape town.
So I assume that the scene in South-Africa is now a bit bigger, are there any cool projects we should keep an eye on?
Yeah, it's maybe a bit false, because they are actually friends of mine, but I really like Double-Adapter.
This is your first gig ever in Belgium, what do you know from the scene here?
I know Gtronic of course, because I played with him a few times, and then I have a lot of projects that I don't know where they're from. Like Trashing Teenagers, apparently they are from Belgium, but I was totally unaware of that until some time.
What would be your perfect party?
I love party's where there aren't too many people, but everybody is partying his ass off, and is totally fucked up!
From all the tracks and remixes that you've done, which one is your favourite?
My favourite remix would be the one I made for Wasabi's - Killer king. It's my newest remix, and I tried to make it a little different than my usual stuff. I will also be opening with it tonight!
And your favourite track?
Hmm, that's a difficult one... I actually like all my tracks, but if I have to pick one, I'll take "It's not our fault", because the vocal is so cool.
It's not our fault by HAEZER
And to end with the things that really matter, what is you favourite drink?
Aha! That would be Jack Daniels! But when I'm playing, I usually drink tequila. Tonight I'll be drinking Wodka though!
Allright man, thanks for you time!
After this interview, Haezer played one of the best sets I have ever seen. 100% raw energy, and the crowd was going completely nuts!

After some delay, the Trumpdisco EP is finally out! All five tracks are bangers of a kind rare to be heard nowadays, trashy, but not so trashy that only the boys will like it. My favourite is "not drowning, raving", but I'm just a sucker for silly vocals (Winzlow has no... dick!) and grinding basslines. "Bullshit" and "Spade" are bangers just the same, but this time the vocals are somewhat less silly - not to say that there aren't any (except one big fat "bullshit" in, you've guessed it, "Bullshit"). "The big wrench" is the track that I would use as an opener, it starts melodic and slow, and after the drop the party is determined to start! The last track is a bit of a setback, not because it's not a good one, but every self respecting Trumpdisco fan has this track in his itunes for more than a year already. But if Trumpdisco is new for you, you should definitely give "1971" a listen!
